- ... 1. We assess the robustness of a 1500-year palaeoclimate data base and forest gap model in simulating northern Scandinavian boreal forest succession since AD 500. We also evaluate trends in species abundance in a nemoral woodland in southern Scandinavia by comparing modelling results to palaeoecological data. 2. Simulated biomass trends for Picea, Pinus and Betula growing at Penningholmen (norther ...
